OAKLAND, Calif. – A man was both shocked and comforted when an elderly stranger paid for his groceries, just because.
On July 20, Sampson McCormick was standing in like at a grocery store when a stranger approached him.
“I was at the grocery store today and this old, white man (Mr. Samuel) walked up to me in line, apologized for racism and police brutality in this country and paid for my groceries.”
Sampson says the moment surprised him.
“He handed me the receipt, gave me a fist bump and said ‘Black Lives Do Matter,'” Sampson wrote in his Facebook post. “Just a random moment of solidarity and love that made my day.”
Sampson’s Facebook post chronicling the moment has been shared more than 22,000 times.
